Jubilee Apostolic Christian Center forced to move due to problems with facilities
The Jubilee Apostolic Christian Center of Dallas, International, described as the only GLBT-affirming Apostolic-Pentecostal church in Texas, has moved again, due to problems with the church’s facilities caused by recent storms.

Officials with the church announced in a press release this week that heavy rains and strong winds caused “major problems with our facility which cannot be readily corrected.”

Officials said the move has necessitated a schedule change, with services now being held at 11 a.m. and 6 p.m. on Sundays, and at 7:30 p.m. on Tuesdays and Thursdays.
The church moved two miles south to a new location at 8153 Bruton Road in Dallas, near the intersection with South Buckner Road.

Parking is available in the shopping center parking lot adjacent to the church property.
